WIP: Carnation, Amy, and Leopold (CotMS)

(From left to right: Carnation, Amy, and Leopold from our Gothic novel, Curse of the Mystic Sword.) πŸ₯€πŸ’€πŸ₯€

I’ve been rearranging the apartment, since I realised I have a lot of space in my room (technically a large walk-in closet), so I have been taking my boxes of old stuff from the hallway, and putting them into my room.

Naturally, I’ve been going thru some of the boxes as I do so, and was happy to rediscover my art book from 2015-2016 (when we resided at the Victorian mansion), which I thought was lost forever! I was so grateful to find it – tysm, God! πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜‡

I also found a very large sketchbook with this trio inside its pages; what’s so special, as well as rare, about this is, all three of us drew this together – I drew Carnation, Micky @octobernocturne drew Amy, and Rob @timewillcrawl94 drew Leopold! πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨πŸ‘¨πŸΌβ€πŸŽ¨πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨

They’re in Curse of the Mysic Sword, a Gothic novel we’ve been writing since Autumn, 2006. Carnation is an independent woman, ever at odds with Leopold, who – unbeknownst to her – is a vampyre, as is his adopted daughter, Amy. 🌹πŸ₯€πŸ¦‡πŸ₯€πŸŒΉ

ArtvsArtist2021

Hello #artvsartist2021 😘 My names Sha! Short for Alexandria. Tis Russian. I’m not. Well, except for a wee bit, way way wayyy back. πŸ™ƒ I’m an aspiring #webcomicartist I mostly draw character designs and romantic couples, cos I’m a girl, and that’s what girls do. πŸ˜‰ Hopeless romantic, that I am! Anyway I’m a fan and writer of #gothicfiction and #darkfantasy so expect that in my forecast. πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ¨πŸŽ¨
Oh yes and before I forget – I’m part of art team @tealightstories with Mikau @octobernocturne Robert @timewillcrawl94 and Matthew @villanimatthew – I’m the #artdirector for the record. ο‘©οΌβ€οŽ€

(My description was originally written for Instagram – I’m LunarArtist_Alexandria on there, and will edit in proper tags when I go on my laptop laters.)

Joyeux anniversaire Leopold

Today is the French vampyre’s birthday. β™‘ This is a #fbf to Christmas, 2013 – I’m surprised I didn’t already have it posted, and came across it by accident yesterday when I was looking for the Thanksgiving 2013 artwork of Mitchi for #tbt. This is Leopold with his young wife: Christabel is an alternate name for Alexandria “Sha” Amaranth, when I wasn’t sure I wanted to share my real name with my personal character, you see. This art piece was inspired by the Phantom of the Opera otome/visual novel romance game, since one of the heroine Christine’s lovers look like Leopold. ;3 β™‘

I’d also like to submit this to PaperDemon’s OC-tober art challenge for the prompt, “In love”. =^.^= β™‘

Happy Friday the 13th

So I drew Leopold with his rapier for deviantART’s Arcade Week, following the art tutorial on line weight – Leopold has his dominant hand uplifted with his rapier closer to the viewer, so I added thicker lines there. {Basically the art tutorial says you go for thicker lines when it’s closer to you, and thinner lines if it’s further away.} If his rapier looks familiar, that’s cos it is – that’s Flambert from Soul Calibur, belonging to Raphael whom Leopold is a homage to. I listened to Sting & The Police while working on this, since Sting is also a visual inspiration for Leopold. β™‘

Also – Happy Friday the 13th!, which has always been a lucky day for me and my Bros. :3 β™‘

Master of the Dark Arts

This is simply for PaperDemon’s OC-tober prompt: “In a halloween costume”, and cos our OC Leopold and John Constantine are both visually inspired by Sting aside from having some similarities, like they both are skilled in dark magic hence the title, and married to women much younger than themselves.

I drew most of this today while hanging out with Miriam-chan; we get together every Monday to draw and hangout.

I wanted to keep it simple, but added more shadows after Micky’s input that Leopold’s shoulders were small – although he did point out that Leopold is effeminine, and I was using a photo of Matt Ryan, who plays Constantine on TV {and who is a bit small himself tbh} for reference, and his shoulders *were* slouched, so… *shrug*

Now I’m thinking his head and features are a bit big, but oh well. . . this was a quick drawing – most of it is cropped out if I’m honest, since it didn’t look good, heh.
